    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Milking on the old product and failing to produce a product that aligns with the latest customer needs

    Cons

    -Kronos engineering has either lost its way or going to soon. -This is a company that once used to be dominant in timecard/timekeeping product has hired incompetent and superficial people over the years recently and lost its way completely -Bad work culture, full of old school seniors with lots of ego and nepotism -Top-Down culture with layers of bureaucracy in engineering -Working in old sticks and stones... tech stack. Plain old Java and nothing else. -No good engineering work happens in the USA and recently almost everything is outsourced to India and Belarus.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE CORRECT YOUR SLACK HIRING PROCESS WHERE ONLY MEDIOCRES ARE GETTING IN. PLEASE STOP CLAIMING YOU ARE BEST PLACE TO WORK WHEN YOUR ENGINEERING IS SO OUT-DATED AND STUCK IN RED-TAPISM. The future is certainly bleak.

    Pros

    Best work life balance , salary and perks are moderate , medical benefits are great. Can get good work based on which product you are in.

    Promotions are mostly more dependent on contacts rather than actual work. No matter how much you work you will not be given 5 star rating.

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    it is local, entry-level career start, a ship to jump to if yours is sinking, you will not be bored especially with all the hype.

    Cons

    Why Kronos Miss the Mark: A True Great Place to Work is: At its core, this is about people. It is not about book signings, ping pong tables, surveys, tokens, lollipops, white bikes, constant corporate propaganda(used for recruiting new and then weeding out long loyalist). Kronos is really about the "yearly bottom line for all the investors". Challenges from industry-wide changes are not resolved only... with strategic plans and board meetings. They require buy-in at every organizational level to be effective. Supporting all employees in the "right ways" is essential whenever an organization reinvents the way it does business. Hence beware: Silent Lay Offs can occur every year! The overall HR value: lame duck - like most shops. They can appear to listen, no value add but they can turn on you indirectly. They also are protecting the bottom line. HR will also do nothing about poor/bad managers. When true "great places to work" companies are much better(honest) at communication in times of change, employees are more productive and motivated. Employees that are consistently informed about important issues and changes are four times more likely to: Look forward to coming to work. Not worried about being laid off. They know they are working at a great place and don't need constant reminders. Twice as likely to give extra work and the time as employees who are not kept in the loop. Another key element is Krono's weak middle management in which Kronos upper management is blind(& detached) too. Usually, the consensus is: it is better to work for a great boss/manager in a crappy company than work for a horrible manager in an alleged good company. Some on this info came from Paul Thallner - Fortune 500 Mag. article .
